Mezlok, under the guidance of Taishiar, hoped to compete in a contest of mages on Mirrankkar. Due to a run-in with a rival on Obsidias, they arrived the day before the contest and had only that day to find a city or town that would accept him to duel for them.
A child led them to the village of Gordahn, where the chief offered him the spot of duelist that had been occupied for ten years by their village warder Jedaht. Jedaht, another keraunomancer, was offended by this and challenged Mezlok to a duel. He lost and teleported away, hoping to face Mezlok again someday.
Mezlok, chosen by Gordahn, was the final entry in the contest.
Mezlok established mana links with the mountains of Obsiadias and the forest of Mirrankkar.
